'Agony exploded in her knee. She staggered, tried to keep going, then nearly fell as a shocking pain rushed up her leg. Confusion and fear swamped her senses, escape suddenly essential. The tuskless cow turned and hobbled away, each step agonising torture. Her front right knee joint had been shattered by the single copper-jacketed bullet. Man, her hated enemy, had just handed out a death sentence. . .'

As the rangers and staff of a luxury lodge in Etosha National Park, Namibia welcome the last guests of the season, thoughts are predominantly on the three-month break ahead. Except for Sean, who is fighting his growing attraction for the manager's wife, Thea. Camping in the park nearby, Professor Eben Kruger has his work cut out keeping the attention of the university students in his charge on the behavioural habits of the cunning jackal.

None of them could ever be prepared for the horrendous events about to take place. Each will be pushed to breaking point as the quest for survival becomes the only thing that matters.

Shocking, gripping, breathtaking. Beverley Harper's outstanding new novel is a guaranteed bestseller.

Despite loving the northern tablelands where she now lives, the memories of Africa have provided the inspiration for her best-selling novels and she goes back to that continent for research purposes once a year. Married to Robert, they have three grown-up sons. Jackal's Dance is Beverley's sixth novel.
